Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

(e) On January 23, 2008, the Compensation and Human Resources Committee (the "Committee") of the Board of Directors of Arbitron Inc. (the "Company") met and approved a non-equity incentive plan for the Company’s executive officers for 2008, which would be payable in early 2009 (the "Incentive Plan").

The Incentive Plan provides for an annual cash payment that is performance linked based upon the Company’s earnings per share (weighted 30%), revenue (weighted 10%), and commercialization of its Portable People MeterTM based radio ratings service (weighted 60%). The Incentive Plan provides for a target cash payment for each executive officer, expressed as a percentage of base salary. The target Incentive Plan payment for Stephen B. Morris, the Company’s Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer is equal to 75% of base salary. The target Incentive Plan payments for other executive officers range from 45-55% of base salary.

The Committee has discretion to authorize a greater or lesser amount in the event the 2008 goals are exceeded or are not met. In the event that the 2008 goals are achieved, the Committee also has discretion to award additional amounts based upon its evaluation of a combination of other quantitative and qualitative considerations, including stock price and achievement of fundamental organizational change, as determined by the Committee.
